anybody getting this error during the install? i followed the directions to the tee:
Yes, I got the same error. Downloading again as maybe it didn't finish.
This will now be the official Froyo 2.2 Installation/Error thread.
Post any problems and error encountered while installing this update.
Downloading again didn't help. Not sure what's going on. Trying everything to get it to work.
This is why I wait for the official release and not have to deal with the headache of being a beta tester. It just isn't worth the trouble especially when HTC even posted saying that the OTA release today is not the official one anyway. I do give credit to all of you welling to take the chance.
do not install, its a bum ROM. Breaks lots of stuff.
The same thing happened to me. I took the battery out and rebooted normally. I went to the file on my SD card and noticed I saved the file as update.zip.zip. The zip extension is already on the file but you can't see it when renaming the file. I just deleted the second .zip and went back through the procedure and it worked fine. I now have my dose of Froyo. It seems stable so far.
Can we put the installation instructions on the first page of this thread then because the other ones are moving so fast it's hard to keep up. Plus the link is down so it would be good to update if it is restored.
Warning! Do not install! HTC says do not install this!
OMG, someone get this guy out of here.
It bricked my phone...im still at the 4g screen on the loading...
everything went good before that...
should i pull the battery?
Dude HTC is warning people not to install it and that it might cause problems with your phone and im just trying to warn people while your trying to tell people to install it.
People can use it at their own risk, which they are obviously doing anyways. Warning or no warning. Are you that determined not to eat crow that the update would be available today?
Care to explain that rather BOLD statement???
I am running it with no problems whatsoever (yet).... Knock on wood...
The update was not available today nor was it ever going to be. I could care less if it comes out today or next week. I would just rather not see people with phones that dont work because people like you are telling them its ok to install it. HTC already said today that the final release wont come out untill next week so i doubt ill be eating crow. Ill be more then happy to finish any that you cant though
just sit back and chuckle at people that brick themselves
"Please be aware any update.zip floating around for EVO are not final and may cause problems. Official updates are coming OTA next week!"HTC | Facebook
I have never bricked a phone that I could not recover yet....
I love using alpha, beta and RC releases....
I am not terrified of unofficial releases.... But to each their own...
The Update was scheduled to be released to a certain few merchants and users this afternoon. They were notified by email to the link. Engadget (or whoever the hell else) got hold of the link and posted it up. This update for all intent and purposes is the final. Now it may be true that those who were destined to receive this link/file are beta testers to test it out and possibly get any fixes before Tuesdays official send off, but thats for another topic. So for all intent and purposes, this is the final, IMO.
Now this isn't an okay to go ahead and download it and install it. If anyone still has reservations, then be patient and wait till Tuesday for the file.
With that said, AndroidForums is not condoning or restricting anyone wanting to test this file themselves. Its your choice. All I ask is to read and re-read the instruction slowly and carefully and be patience while the install does what it does.
As for the OP issue,, your issue was already addressed in this post.
Now if there are any other issues, post them up.
I'm too slow with the typing! Twospirits got it under control.
You are too hardheaded to admit that this is exactly what the press releases were talking about and that you argued over and over against for the last day and a half. It's a beta, and that was made clear from the onset, nothing has changed. HTC is just trying to rid themselves of any liability.
I don't see how it could get any worse than the first update anyways. I'm not telling anyone it's ok, in fact I'm not telling people what to do with their phones at all, YOU ARE!!!!!
Show people the disclaimer and let them decide for themselves. There are enough people froyo'ing around for me to be willing to try the update. Final or not, and as it seems, there are plenty more as well.
I was running CM6 nightly builds for almost 2 weeks so i know all about builds that dont work and unofficial releases. To you and me it might not be a problem but to someone that doesnt know as much and installs this it might be a big problem.
Anyone hopeful that this would fix the FPS issue, it does not... I am still at 30fps and stdev is 6.80
How and the hell do you think this was the manual release sprint was talking about? Go back and read it my friend. It says to install the manual release when it comes out it will still be OTA you just have to hit search now under HTC Software updates. Sprint and HTC both will NEVER release a update that you have to go into your bootloader to do. Face it, it was a mistake by HTC for having it on the website. It was pulled right away and they asked everyone else that was hosting the download to pull it also.
Never should you have to go into your bootloader to install a update from sprint or htc and that fact alone makes it clear as day that this was not ment for the public.
